How soon is too soon to start potty training your child? Kandi Burruss Tucker is coming under fire for starting the potty training process early on 4-month-old Ace Wells Tucker. Too early? Decide for yourself inside….
Can you believe baby Ace Wells Tucker is already 4-months-old? We sure can’t. Time is flying.
Anywho, his mom “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss Tucker is being criticized for a few Instagram videos she posted recently. In the clips, she attempts to start the potty training process on her baby boy, placing him on the toilet (with a baby seat) so he can get used to sitting on the toilet.
Here are the clips she shared:
Ok I know a lot of people are gonna talk trash because we have #Ace on the potty already but I did the same thing with @rileyburruss. I bought the baby toilet seat that fits on top of the toilet & for the past week we’ve been putting Ace on the toilet in the mornings. As soon as we sit him up there he pees. One time he pooped & peed. It helps to get them used to the concept early. I don’t expect him to be fully potty trained early but it does help. I’ve done it before so I’m speaking from experience. I’m not saying it will work for anyone else but this works for us. Today I didn’t get the diaper off quick enough & he started going as soon as I sat him on the toilet! He got me! @acewellstucker

Ok A lot of people wouldn’t believe us if we didn’t have it on video so I had to post this. @acewellstucker is 4 months old & he will poop on the potty. Parents if you have a baby start sitting them on the potty early! Get them used to it.

Well, Kandi became a Hot Topic on today’s episode of “The View” (where Jimmy Kimmel was a guest co-host) and here’s what the hosts had to say about her potty training technique. (Check it at the 3:00 minute mark):
Whoopi Goldberg’s commentary and/or Jimmy’s line about “not taking advice from a housewife” must have gotten under Kandi’s skin.
The reality star/singer got wind of their comments and decided to respond to their critique. She hopped on Instagram and posted:
Some are saying 4-months is way too early while others have flooded Kandi’s comments section thanking her for the parenting tip.
So what do you all think? Is 4-months-old too soon to potty train your baby? Speak on it in the comments!
